SocksCap is an application wrapper developed by NEC. SocksCap allows Windows users to enable their Winsock applications to traverse a SOCKS server. SocksCap does not require modifications to the Winsock applications or the Winsock stacks. However, due to the multitude of available Winsock stacks, SocksCap may not work in every situation. On a SOCKS-enabled firewall, SocksCap offers a client-only solution.
